top 6 is stacked.

the guys mentioned as potential losses are the guys with the big price tags that would make the biggest impact to the cap.

center depth past stepan is shaky offensively, but our top 6 is our big strength and we don't sacrifice our top pairing defense to have it...we have 3 very good top 3 defenseman, and del zotto. our bottom 6 isn't bad by any means, but certainly not good either. defense past the top 3/4 is a little awkward, but we're certainly more stacked than we have been in a decade. more stacked than most--if not all teams in the league are right now. AND we have the best goalie in the world.

there's no doubt that a full-year lockout hurts us more than most teams since we're the best projected team. next year we have the potential of losing a big impact guy to cap, and that will suck.

edit: lw we have hagelin/kreider/nash... that's an extremely strong top 3 lw on any team in the league. rupp is def good at what he does for the 4th. unless callahan is bumped to our 3rd rw and nash plays 2nd rw... we're strong on that side. most teams don't have 'incredible' minor depth.
